Today I used Barchart to sort the stocks hitting new highs that traded more than 100K shares and then sorted for frequency.  I chose the stocks hitting the most highs in the last month.  Remember there are only 20 trading sessions in a month.  My list includes Yahoo! (YHOO)Chemtura (CHMT),  CVR Energy (CVI), Pilgrim's Pride (PPC), and United Therapeutics (UTHR):

United Therapeutics (UTHR)
Special Comments:  Normally this is not a stock that would come under my radar because all of the reasons it showed up on my screening was it's very short term momentum.  The momentum however can't be ignored.  The short time frame makes this stock the most speculative on the list.
